12 week post-op

What have I been doing the past 6 weeks? Nothing and then a lot. At my last appointment I was given an exercise ball and bands. I was given a hand out with exercises to do to tone and strengthen, have I used any of that - No. Why? You may ask, because I feel silly doing it alone in my own home. With no one here to watch me and make sure that I am doing it...it won't get done.

For the first 3 weeks after my last appointment I did nothing. Then 1 day I got this wild hair and decided to walk. I have been walking every week since doing at the least 2.5 miles and up to 4 miles, per day. I walk 3 times a week and sometimes more. Walking is better than nothing right? Just hope my Dr feels the same way.

I am nervous (again) for this appointment, fat people are always nervous - reckon that I will ever grow out of that?

On a side note, I went threw my closet yesterday and a good bit of my clothes are too Big and I feel frumpy wearing them. Last night I went horseback riding with girlfriends and the only thing I had to wear were bigger pants and a bigger shirt... I don't like the way I look in the few pictures that were taken of me.
* I will update later on how my appointment went.
